Exam needed: To be sure these would have to be inspected by a physician, but since they blanch on stretching the skin, it would rule out a hemangioma or petechia.

Additional tests: You can contact the clinic where you had the STD testing to learn if a wet mount was performed. Often standard lab testing checks for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia which can now be tested from a urine sample. A wet mount or special request with specimen would be required to look for trichomonas and STD, or gardeneralla, an overgrowth of your own bacteria, non-STD. One of these could be the culprit. ...Read more

Allergy: It's possible that the serum in the original bite contained material that caused additional allergic reactions in the surrounding skin. Have you applied cortisone type cream to the rash? Taking an antihistamine like benadryl (may cause drowsiness) will also help the reaction and the itch. If redness and burning appear you may be developing cellulitis which requires antibiotic medication and cream. ...Read more
